Steve and Jill Schmidt


More than thirty years ago Jill and I began our college experience at Iowa State University. We entered Iowa State as freshmen the fall of 1989, excited about the future yet unsure about where we fit in and what would lie ahead.

And as the saying goes the more things change the more they stay the same. Even though more than three decades of time have passed, thousands of freshman are still showing up on college campuses around the world excited about the future yet unsure of what lies ahead.

Our vision is that every student and faculty member on every college campus in the world would have an opportunity to hear and respond to the Gospel of Christ before they graduate. We hope that their future would include a personal relationship with Jesus Christ!

Join us in praying that 30 years from now there will be thousands of men and women who will be remembering how they came to Christ their freshmen year in college. The Lord is faithful, and He will never stop caring for and pursuing the souls of college students and faculty. We deeply appreciate your partnership in this great endeavor. Thank you!

Steve, Jill, Andy and Sophia
